    Summary

    Wilbur almost died a week ago. He didn't, but he almost did.

    He's back home living with a father he hasn't spoken to in three years. With shaky fingers, he picks up his old habits and tries to mimic the routine of the man he once was. He's trying. It's not much - he's still a shitty person trying to make up for all the wrong he did, but he is trying. For Phil. For Techno. For himself.

    He was getting it together. He almost had it back together.

    And then a unruly blond teenager stumbled into his store two minutes before close, and Wilbur's world fell apart.

    Summary

    “Henry’s probably not out, and some hetero-passing dudebro who has historically exclusively dated girls is asking him if he’s doing anything later...? My best guess is he thinks you’re trying to be his friend, and he’s practising a healthy amount of self-preservation.”

    Alex stares at his sister as she finishes her little speech, picking up two bottles of vodka and depositing them in the cart with a flourish. “That’s… total bullshit, Bug. I thought journalists were meant to care about facts, not indulge in wild speculation.”

    “And I thought pol-sci majors were meant to be smart, but here you are.”

    Summary

    Luke was at the same place, every day; Irwin's Diner at a quarter to three, a cigarette between his teeth as he waited for the coffee to brew. It felt comforting. To have the same routine and the same people.

    Though, he never thought that a change in his schedule could make his whole life change. He never thought that she could make him want to be better.

    Troubles through his childhood continued on into his teenage years, and now in adulthood he was abandoned to deal with them all on his own. This lead to Luke being the way he was; cold, harsh, non-verbal and incredibly closed off.

    She, Charlotte Halpern, managed to change that.

    The way her eyes glowed and her hair blew in the wind, the way her dresses and skirts always followed her flow. Luke accepted the change, instead of pushing it away.

    Though, as Charlotte struggles with her own mind, she manages to turn into Luke pre-Charlie. She shuts off completely and doesn't talk to anyone.

    When Luke does the same thing she did for him, Charlotte realises that he cares for her more than he shows. And that she'd like him to be in her life for longer than intended.

    Summary

    Everyone who’s seen Ashton knows how large his hands are. They’re massive, with palms nearly as big as the entirety of his face and slender, long fingers all dressed in cuts and blisters from drumming with all his might. Even in their teenage years, Ashton’s hands have always been mesmerizing to Luke, especially comparing the size difference between their hands. Ashton’s has always dwarfed Luke’s in a way that no one else’s ever has before and probably never will again.

    One thought that has somehow never plagued his mind is how absolutely devastatingly large Ashton’s hand looks on his thigh.

    Summary

    Freshly graduated from the police academy, Caitlyn Kiraman is determined to prove to her fellow officers that she is more than just a rich girl with a pretty face. After overhearing her commanding officers talking about an illegal fighting ring in the Undercity, she goes to investigate for herself with the hopes of gathering evidence to prove her worth.

    What she finds is the equivalent of a nightmare, people being put inside the ring to fight each other to the death like dogs. It’s inhumane torture at the price of earning a profit and providing entertainment for a crowd. It gets even worse when she finds out one of the top fighters is someone no older than her, a pink haired girl with metal-clad fists and a sharp tongue to match, who’s fighting spirit reminds her far too much of her own.

    It’s quickly discovered that something far more dangerous is brewing beyond the walls of Piltover, something bigger and badder than anyone could have prepared for.

    Summary

    You work at a diner, a typical nine to five. It's annoying, but it gets the job done.

    It would be LESS annoying if a certain mob boss would just leave you the hell alone. After an incident that nearly makes you lose your job you go to his office to give him a piece of your mind.

    Maybe a piece of your heart as well.

    Summary

    Sylvain had never seen Felix like this, in a soft navy button down and dark dress slacks, face fresh and hair foregoing its usual messy bun to rest in a side braid that peeked over his shoulder. Instead of acrid metal and sweat (which Sylvain did not dislike in the slightest), Felix smelled of pine and the hints of summer, stronger than the faint whiffs of it he’d caught whenever they hugged. It was intoxicating.

    Summary

    Mindlessly, Rey reached for the little jelly jars lined next to the pitcher of warm pancake syrup, and tucked them into her purse. 

     

    The movement caught the corner of Breha’s eyes. Indignantly she whispered, “Grand-mère, what are you doing?” Her eyes grew round, watching her grandmother stash the jars into her pocketbook, “That’s stealing.”

    Summary

    Steve has fully accepted the role of babysitter and, yeah, he kinda loves the kids, even if he'd never admit such a thing, but going on what is essentially a blind date with Max's brother just so he isn't breathing down her neck while the kids hang out is a bit extreme.

    ...What the hell has he gotten himself into here?

    Summary

    "Run away with me. I can have my car packed up by tomorrow morning. I’ll take you as far as you want, wherever you want to go. We don’t have to stay together. I just want you to be safe. We can get you a motel room and a job in one of the smaller towns up north and maybe things’ll be peachy-keen."

    Summary

    Eventually, though, the soup aisle has to end. When Robin inevitably writes about this in her creative writing course, because she's running out of topics for the personal essays, she'll say this was a metaphor for her leaving her comfort zone or something. But now, it's entirely literal and she needs something else to grab all of her attention. Frozen pizza suddenly sounds really good.

    She doesn't mean to, but she turns and runs directly into Nancy Wheeler.

    Summary

    The diner was found by accident. The rain was impossible and freezing, roaring down from the sky in sideways sheets that turned the asphalt into a strip of Teflon. It was dangerous conditions for a car, let alone a motorcycle.

    Or: There is a reason Happy keeps going back to the diner, and it's not the pie.

    Summary

    Boston. 2080. A city with as many shady secrets as it can hold, and maybe even a few more. The wealth gap keeps widening, crime isn't cleaning itself up anytime soon, and dark conspiracies run through banned papers in underground speakeasies. As if the threat of the Chinese atom bomb isn't enough.

    A stray comes in from the rain, and R.J. MacCready is sucked into a twisting, sordid mystery that sinks to the depths of Boston's most well kept secrets, all centered around the last girl you'd ever expect to have so many monsters in her closet.

    But, as Nick Valentine likes to say, one should always expect the unexpected. And looks can be very, very deceiving.
